We are looking forward to welcoming you at the foodFIRST conference, which was co-organised by ECDPM. This year, the conference will focus on the challenges and opportunities for African farmers/agripreneurs to provide the urban population with fresh and healthy food, such as vegetables, fruit, poultry, dairy products and meat; with a special focus on the farm-to-market trajectory. How should the Dutch Diamond actors (government, research institutions, business and civil society organizations) connect to these challenges and opportunities, establishing partnerships for reinforcing rural-urban linkages and developing the food chain?
